Purchase a Personal or Commercial Message on an Upcoming Podcast Episode!

Our "Jumbotron" program allows anyone to share their message on a MaximumFun.org podcast - just like the Jumbotron at the ballpark. It's a fun way to show your support for your favorite shows and get the word out about what you're up to. It's easy and cheap - only $100 for a personal message or $200 for a commercial one.

Anyone can buy a personal or commercial message on an upcoming episode of Baby Geniuses; Bunker Buddies; Can I Pet Your Dog?; Dead Pilots Society; The Flop House; The Greatest Discovery; Jordan, Jesse, Go!; Lady to Lady; Minority Korner; Oh No, Ross and Carrie! ; One Bad Mother; Pop Rocket; Reading Glasses; Shmanners; Still Buffering; Stop Podcasting Yourself; and We Got This!

Jumbotron messages for My Brother, My Brother and Me, Wonderful! and The Adventure Zone are sold out for 2017 and 2018. The Greatest Generation is sold out for 2017.

Here's what you need to know:

What It Is
The Jumbotron program is an accessible and informal way for listeners to sponsor an episode of a MaxFun podcast. These are one-off messages that we offer to our listener community at an almost laughably inexpensive rate. You'll provide a couple of lines of basic info, and you'll get a mention on an upcoming episode.

What It Isn't
We'd love to have you or your company as an advertiser, but personal and commercial messages aren't intended for ongoing advertising campaigns. If you're interested in sponsoring one of our podcasts on an ongoing basis, you need to get your message out on a specific date, you want to see listener data, or you want to sponsor more than one episode, please contact kira@maximumfun.org for more information about advertising.

If you aren't sure if your message would qualify as a personal or commercial Jumbotron, or if you have any other questions about Jumbotron messages, please email daniel@maximumfun.org.

Scheduling
Messages are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. You'll have the opportunity to request a preferred time-frame and we'll do our best to get your message out within that time-frame or as close to it as possible. This calendar, updated about once a week, gives you an idea of when episodes have been booked up.

-Someone looking for work (e.g. an employment seeker's ad)

*If your message falls under one of these categories, it's a commercial message and the cost is $200.

By The Way
It rarely comes up, but we reserve the right to not run a message. There are a few reasons this might happen - and undoubtedly some that we haven't thought of yet - but here are some things that cause issues: (1) if we find a message questionable or offensive, or if the hosts do not feel comfortable reading the message, (2) if the project or product in a commercial message resembles a current sponsor of the show, (3) if the message is political in nature - even if the politics align with ours (Other than the 2020 presidential campaign of Dip Dopson & Chip Dipson, of course.) In all of these cases we will not be able to run your message and will refund you in full.
